Launch of Ampreg-3x Epoxy Laminating Resin

Ampreg-3x series

The AmpregTM 3X Series replaces Gurit‚Äôs lega¬≠cy range of wet lam¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion sys¬≠tems for the man¬≠u¬≠fac¬≠ture of large com¬≠pos¬≠ite struc¬≠tures in the marine, wind and con¬≠struc¬≠tion indus¬≠tries. The com¬≠pre¬≠hen¬≠sive AmpregTM 3X Series port¬≠fo¬≠lio includes a unique range of low tox¬≠i¬≠c¬≠i¬≠ty and mis¬≠ci¬≠bil¬≠i¬≠ty cur¬≠ing agents that can be used in con¬≠junc¬≠tion with the fol¬≠low¬≠ing resins:

  • AmpregTM 30, low vis¬≠cos¬≠i¬≠ty resin: replaces Ampreg 21
  • AmpregTM 31, run-off resis¬≠tant resin: replaces Ampreg 22
  • AmpregTM 36, pre¬≠mi¬≠um Per¬≠for¬≠mance Resin: replaces Ampreg 26

Oth­er ancil­lary prod­ucts such as Thixotrop­ic Pregel Resin and High Tg Hard­en­er are also available!

FOCUS: HEALTH AND SAFETY

The award-win­ning AmpregTM 3X Series lam­i­nat­ing sys­tem has been redesigned to ensure user health and safe­ty through care­ful selec­tion of base chem­i­cals. The new low tox­i­c­i­ty resin matrix is CMR, SVHC and AEP free* and the hard­en­ers are clas­si­fied as envi­ron­men­tal­ly friendly.

Our man¬≠u¬≠fac¬≠tur¬≠er, Gurit, care¬≠ful¬≠ly selects the chem¬≠i¬≠cals used in for¬≠mu¬≠la¬≠tions to ensure the low¬≠est pos¬≠si¬≠ble risk of future reclas¬≠si¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion ‚ÄĒ prod¬≠uct safe¬≠ty and end-user health and safe¬≠ty are para¬≠mount. This approach is part of Gurit‚Äôs phi¬≠los¬≠o¬≠phy. As a respon¬≠si¬≠ble and sus¬≠tain¬≠able sup¬≠pli¬≠er, we want to sup¬≠port, pro¬≠tect and warn our cus¬≠tomers of poten¬≠tial changes.

The AmpregTM 3X series is now avail¬≠able with LRT (Light Reflec¬≠tive Tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy) as stan¬≠dard. Gurit‚Äôs Light Reflec¬≠tive Tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy (LRT) is an addi¬≠tive that helps to make con¬≠t¬≠a¬≠m¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion from haz¬≠ardous chem¬≠i¬≠cals vis¬≠i¬≠ble in the work¬≠place and on the processor‚Äôs cloth¬≠ing. Gurit AmpregTM Series 3X lam¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing sys¬≠tems are the first pro¬≠duc¬≠tion series from Gurit to fea¬≠ture this new tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy as stan¬≠dard. This addi¬≠tive can be incor¬≠po¬≠rat¬≠ed into the matrix of resins in all of our lam¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing and bond¬≠ing sys¬≠tems with¬≠out alter¬≠ing their com¬≠po¬≠si¬≠tion or han¬≠dling prop¬≠er¬≠ties or the per¬≠for¬≠mance char¬≠ac¬≠ter¬≠is¬≠tics of the cured resin.

With this new process, resin droplets of less than 1 mm are detectable. This makes con¬≠t¬≠a¬≠m¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion with epoxy resin, pre¬≠vi¬≠ous¬≠ly invis¬≠i¬≠ble to the naked eye, eas¬≠i¬≠ly detectable on the user‚Äôs skin as well as on equip¬≠ment, door¬≠knobs and sim¬≠i¬≠lar loca¬≠tions. Thus, con¬≠t¬≠a¬≠m¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion with resins can be eas¬≠i¬≠ly removed from the skin, con¬≠tribut¬≠ing to a low¬≠er risk of skin con¬≠tact with uncured resins, as well as a low¬≠er inci¬≠dence of skin irri¬≠ta¬≠tion caused to users. To learn more about Gurit¬ģ LRT tech¬≠nol¬≠o¬≠gy, please read the cor¬≠re¬≠spond¬≠ing data sheet: [down¬≠load id=‚Äú2365‚ÄĚ]

Gurit¬ģ Ampreg-3X lam¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing series offers:

  • Wide range of robust resins for excel¬≠lent mechan¬≠i¬≠cal and ther¬≠mal prop¬≠er¬≠ties of laminates
  • Easy lam¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion of heavy duty reinforcements
  • Good cur¬≠ing progress due to cur¬≠ing at nor¬≠mal ambi¬≠ent temperatures


EASY MIXING:
The Ampreg-3X lam¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing series is avail¬≠able with a sin¬≠gle series of hard¬≠en¬≠er speeds from fast to extra slow, and offers the abil¬≠i¬≠ty to mix hard¬≠en¬≠ers to achieve a wide range of work¬≠ing times.

AWARD: Gurit‚Äôs inno¬≠v¬≠a¬≠tive approach to pri¬≠or¬≠i¬≠tiz¬≠ing user health and safe¬≠ty was rec¬≠og¬≠nized and award¬≠ed the 2018 Com¬≠pos¬≠ites UK Inno¬≠va¬≠tion in Com¬≠pos¬≠ite Mate¬≠ri¬≠als Award.

CERTIFICATIONS: AmpregTM 30 and AmpregTM 31 are DNV-GL and Lloyd’s Reg­is­ter certified.

AVAILABILITY: The Gurit¬ģ AmpregTM 3X series lam¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion sys¬≠tem is avail¬≠able world¬≠wide. The lam¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion sys¬≠tem is avail¬≠able in a vari¬≠ety of con¬≠tain¬≠er sizes, from small packs to drums to IBC containers.

OUR CONTAINER TYPES

We offer our prod¬≠ucts in dif¬≠fer¬≠ent con¬≠tain¬≠ers so that the right quan¬≠ti¬≠ty is always avail¬≠able. Our resins have a shelf life of up to 2 years after pro¬≠duc¬≠tion. The resin and hard¬≠ness quan¬≠ti¬≠ties are matched to each oth¬≠er in such a way that the con¬≠tain¬≠er sizes are in the cor¬≠rect mix¬≠ing ratio.

*CMR = Sub­stances clas­si­fied as car­cino­genic, muta­genic or tox­ic for repro­duc­tion.
SVHC = Sub­stances of Very High Con­cern.
AEP = Com¬≠mon¬≠ly used rapid epoxy resin cur¬≠ing agent clas¬≠si¬≠fied as CMR.
